The toast of British TV talent flocked to London’s Royal Festival Hall last night (Sunday 12 May) for the annual BAFTA TV awards where Killing Eve won big (three awards, including leading actress for Jodie Comer) and Benedict Cumberbatch *finally* bagged a BAFTA.
Meanwhile, on the red carpet, competition was tough when it came to naming best-dressed – but we spotted plenty of women we’d like to nominate…Here’s ten of our favourite TV stars who completely nailed their red carpet look…
The Poldark actress – soon to be seen in Yesterday, this summer’s much-touted film must-see – shimmered in this dusty pink creation.
Billie, who was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in Collateral, turned heads in a black one-shouldered blazer dress by Dundas with crystal embellished Jimmy Choos.
The current queen of our TV screens dazzled in vibrant Stella McCartney – and took home the leading actress award for her incredible turn as Villanelle in Killing Eve. Applause all round!
The Riviera actress (but we’ll always love her most in 10 Things I Hate About You) looked gorgeous in J Mendel.
Keeley oozed old school glamour in her Suzanne Neville gown as Bodyguard snagged award for Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment.
Paloma paired her embellished black dress – the split-thigh look was one of the night’s biggest trends – with platforms and pop socks.
Ruth, who was nominated for the leading actress award for her part in Mrs Wilson (based on her own family’s history) looked stunning in her Alessandra Rich look, complete with a plunging neckline.
Strictly Come Dancing’s head judge looked magnificent in monochrome – and even gave a little twirl as she presented an award with Joe Sugg onstage.
Soon to be seen in the highly anticipated Gentleman Jack, Suranne looked stunning in her blazer-stye cape gown.
The star – whose TV show Killing Eve was the hit of the evening – looked flawless in her duck egg blue gown with cape sleeves.
Daisy May Cooper
This Country‘s Daisy May Cooper wore a bin bag dress (complete with pigeon headdress) designed by her mum, explaining that ‘I decided I would donate the money I would spend on a normal dress to a food bank – and come in a bin bag’.
